Baked chickpeas are a satisfying and healthy alternative to processed, unhealthy snacks such as chips.  Give them a try!


Ingredients:

Use organic ingredients when possible


-1 (15 oz) can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained

-2 tablespoons olive oil

-1 dash sea salt or Himalayan pink salt

-1 dash ground black pepper

-1 teaspoon of spices that you enjoy such as garlic power, paprika, cumin, or chili powder. (Optional)


Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Mix the olive oil with salt, pepper and spices of your selection. Toss the oil mixture with the chickpeas so that they are nicely coated. Spread evenly onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden and crispy.


Tips:

-Select garbanzo bean brands that come in PBA-free cans or buy dried beans and soak them yourself.

-Select brands that have no added salt.

-I like to add a pinch of cayenne pepper for a little spice!
